#UberPuppy Day

With the release of the movie Twelvenights, the care of stray dogs in Taiwan has become a hot topic of discussion, and Uber is joining in to do our part. We’ve partnered with Taiwan Life Caring and Animal Rescue Organization as well as Wayne’s Cafe to bring puppies to your door as part of a charity event. Are you ready for #UberPuppy ?


On 12/3/2013, Uber is delivering puppies on-demand to the residents of Taipei!


Are you ready to fire up the Uber app and have bundles of cuteness be delivered to your door?

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Download the Uber app for iPhone or Android

  2. Between 11am – 4pm today, request the “PUPPY!” option via your app

  3. If the pups are available, you and your buds will be enjoying 15 minutes of snuggles and brownies from Wayne’s Cafe as well as a limited edition Uber Travel Mug!

THE BEST PART:

It’s only  NT $300 to:

  • Play with the Puppies for 15 minutes

  • Enjoy brownies from Wayne’s Cafe

  • Receive an Uber Travel Mug

What’s more? ALL of that money will be donated to Taiwan Life Caring and Animal Rescue Organization and will be automatically charged to your Uber account. If you want to donate more, we’ll have volunteers on site to collect additional cash donations!


Uber, can I keep it?

YES, you can apply to adopt a puppy on that day! Just let the LCO representative on site know and they will take down your information and follow up with the adoption process. Stretch those 15 minutes out to a lifetime!

Please ensure your puppy delivery location

If you’re lucky enough to get one of our PuppyMobiles, please make sure your office manager, landlord, and/or neighbors will welcome these adorable little guys with open arms! Ideally, we’d like a small enclosed space to place these puppies in.

Spread the puppy love! #UberPuppy !

We encourage you to post pictures of this wonderful expereince and share it on your Facebook/Instagram/Twitter to raise awareness for this charity event so that more of these little fellas can get a chance to find a new home! Remember to hashtag #UberPuppy so that people around the world will get a chance to see how cute these little pups are!


Limited Availability!

These PuppyMobiles will be extremely limited in quantity on the day of the event! If you can’t seem to get a puppy, please be patient and try again! Hopefully with a little luck you’ll be able to book one soon!

Enjoy the puppies! They’ve just been bathed and groomed by Wayne’s Cafe, and we’ll have some snacks on hand as well to feed them, remember to take pictures for us!

車輛共享合法化:若台灣有另一種更適合的運輸法規?

全世界現已有超過100個地區(包括城市、州、國家)因應車輛分享趨勢重新檢視運輸法規,並且制訂新的規管方法;新的法規不僅能提供共享產業更明確的在地發展空間,同時也透過規範確實保障公眾與乘客安全。這些新法可能因各地文化、交通體系、既有管理辦法的不同而有差異,但共同點在於皆以認同共享平台的價值出發。

Uber 在全球持續努力與各地政府溝通合作,在台灣,我們同樣期望能將此接納平台價值的管理架構作為與台灣政府討論的重點。Uber 在全球與各地政府在法規管理上亦有不同的學習,其中都包括保障以下三點原則:

– 行程安全保障:運用智慧科技確保每一趟行程的安全。
– 駕駛人權益:彈性經濟制度與數據化的效率提升-為駕駛人帶來更多的經濟可能,更自由賺取額外收入。
– 消費者選擇:尊重市場機制,創造具備競爭的市場環境,讓駕駛與消費者可選擇不同平台,並且由市場供需決定價格

在許多地方,職業計程車的相關法規在網際網路出現之前就已經完成。過去十年之間,因為科技發展,這些法規也開始面臨許多挑戰。在網路時代,大家已經明白線上拍賣平台不是零售商、訂房網站不是旅館業,管理 YouTube 或直播平台與電視台的也有不同的規管辦法…
